Beaches · Nightlife · Landmarks
One of the country’s most prosperous regions, Alicante Province is known for near-perfect climatic conditions, arguably the best in the country, and a series of sandy beaches and seaside resorts ideal for a relaxing holiday. Despite the prosperity driven by tourism, modernity runs right alongside tradition in this province, and visitors are often surprised to find hamlets completely unaffected by the 21st century hidden in the rugged mountains of the interior. A region of contrasts, the province is home to a diverse population, including a huge community of Nordic residents who have found homes away from home in the small settlements along the coast.
